Radio Child
Lyrics transcribed by: Daniel Gold
Music transcribed by: Scott Holcomb

Verse 1:
Bm
Always been the radio's child
Quick-to-smile precious baby
Am                              Em
     Search the dial and electrify
Bm
Drive a tight little corner back in the mirror
Radio boys trying on all their moves
C                               E
     Spare some change and testify

A
Radio playing in your sleep
                        E
Prophet waiting in your car
F#m    E                D         C#m   Bm
Worlds whispered in the mind of a radio child
A
Rhymes cheating keeping time,
                           E
Eyes stretching across the stars
F#m      E           D         C#m   Bm
Over and over in the life of a radio child
Radio Child

Groove over an Em until Todd calls for the change to C.

After Todd's drums break, jam over a C chord for 8 measures,
then move back to the Main Riff.

Verse 2:
Bm
The radios laugh like all their friends
Telling jokes the old folks know so well
Am                                   Em
     Like an old guitar plays a lullaby

A
Radio cradling your dreams
                        E
Prophet waiting in your car
F#m    E                D         C#m   Bm
Worlds whispered in the mind of a radio child
A
Rhymes cheating keeping time,
                           E
Eyes stretching across the stars
F#m      E           D         C#m   Bm
Over and over in the life of a radio child
           Bm
Yeah radio child
Precious baby, precious baby

Jam over the Bm for a bit, then end with this:
  Bm     (3x) Bm D  A       F#m
